White Pony Lodge is seeking to have an abandoned house in Regina’s North Central neighbourhood demolished.
The group posted on their Facebook page saying a request was made under the Community Standards Bylaw.
According to White Pony Lodge, the house, which is located on the corner of Angus Street and Dewdney Avenue, has become a hazard for members in the community.
“The needles, the drug use, the squatting, it’s not safe for anyone for a house like this to be standing,” said Shawna Oochoo, patrol coordinator with White Pony Lodge.
“We care about our community. There are residents who live down here, we are passionate about our community, we love our community.”
Oochoo said the house is in a residential area and has an apartment complex beside it. She also said kids play around the house.
Oochoo is hoping the demolition of the house will cause other property owners in the area to take notice.
“We want to send the message that we want owners to take care of their property, especially if it’s in North Central,” Oochoo said.
Oochoo said the owner of the property does have time to respond or file an appeal.
If the owners do not respond to the request, Oochoo said demolition is scheduled to happen sometime in late fall.
